Heartfelt Creations-Altered Poinsettia Box

Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. For my project this week, I altered a Dollar Store Gift Box Holiday gift givin. This would be perfect with some homemade cookies or candy on the inside. It's big enough to hold a set of Christmas cards too or some of the small bath and body works projects.
Heartfelt Creations:
HCPC3316 Poinsettia Petals PreCut Set
HCD704 Perfect Petals

Spellbinders: S4-328 Shapeabiliites Foliage

Other Empty Box from the Dollar Store, Versa Mark Stamp Pad, White Embossing Powder, Green Sparkly Foliage, Recollection White Circle Stickers for the centers on the poinsettia and hot glue. White, Red, and Green Card Stock-Scraps were used for this project.

Be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations blog for the detailed directions on how to make one of these. Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a moment out of your busy schedule.

Had to got to the Doctor's today as I am having problems with breathing again. I got a shot this time and I am not talking about a lemon drop or tequila either. I'm not lucky enough for that....lol It is suppose to help me get better quicker so I am not sick for Christmas. No steroids...thank goodness I hope to get rid of this crud sometime soon!

Gorgeous poinsettias and a beautiful box, Carol. Hope you are much better soon. I came down with a terrible cold...the worst in years. Looks like I'll not be having the best Christmas ever. Ugh!

Wow, Carol this is gorgeous. Love the contrast of the poinsettias against the glitter background. I hope you feel better soon.

Carol, I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling crummy again. This has been a bad year for you with your breathing. (in some way, many of us PUnchiez have had a sucky 2011, wouldn't you say? Still blessed to be alive though!)

This box is GORGEOUS. It is CAS, in a way, but one of the most awesome examples of CAS ever! Whoever receives this with a gift inside should treasure it.
